A Capcom it’s at Kadokawa released, this Tuesday (11), the first trailer for the movie Resident Evil: Death Island. Without measuring efforts, the preview seems to be everything fans ever wanted to see: all the classic protagonists of the franchise in one place, taking on biological weapons in style.
Chronologically, the story takes place after the events of Resident Evil 6, set in the franchise in 2013. strong point in the plot is the continuation of the story of Jill Valetine, which was “forgotten” by the franchise. In it, the heroine still suffers from the guilt of having been controlled by Albert Wesker to attack her friends — during the events of Resident Evil 5, in 2009. However, there is no time to lose in the face of a new threat!
The result is beautiful to look at: Chris e Claire Redfield, Jill Valentine, Leon S. Kennedy e Rebecca Chambers teaming up for the first time to deal with yet another biological weapon involving the T-Virus. Despite all the hype, it is worth remembering that computer graphics movies bring a very exaggerated level of action, which can be quite different from the new games released.
Watch the trailer below, available in English with Portuguese subtitles:
This will be the fourth computer-animated film in the franchise, all considered canonical and linked directly to the games. The first was Degeneration (2008), followed by Damnation (2012) and Vendetta (2017), in addition to the miniseries Infinite Darkness (2021).
